1942. Two men are in a Japanese Prisoner of War cell in Hong Kong. One is Morris ‘Two-Gun’ Cohen, an East London Jewish born adventurer, con-man, gambler and charlatan who after imprisonment as a child for pickpocketing was sent away, aged 15, by his despairing family to a distant cousin's ranch in Canada and through a sequence of unlikely events ends up as a General in the Chinese Army. The other is Seymour Major, the Head of Hong Kong CID. Facing a precarious and uncertain future, they pass the time talking about how Morris acquired his legendary nickname and status.
A remarkable man who survived world and civil wars and was integrally involved with the key figures and events in the development and separation of modern China and Taiwan a situation that is still making headlines today.
WP Drama are proud to produce this new work, based on the true story and using much of Morris’ own words, following a succesful and critical acclaimed preview in London.
